Emotional John Boehner Wipes Away Tears During Pope Francis Visit

House Speaker John Boehner, who frequently gets emotional during important moments, blinked back tears and wiped his eyes during the papal visit on Capitol Hill today.

Boehner has worked to organize a papal visit to Congress for twenty years of his long political career in the House of Representatives — an effort that finally reached it’s conclusion with Pope Francis’s visit today.

After the speech, Boehner was overcome with emotion as he stood with the Pope on the Speaker’s balcony.

Boehner wasn’t the only one who got misty-eyed during the speech. Sen. Marco Rubio also wiped away a tear as Pope Francis spoke about America being built by the “sons of immigrants”
